A charity working with the Church to inspire action on the climate crisis

 

Operation Noah was set up in 2004 to provide a Christian response to the climate crisis. It works with all Christian denominations and supports interfaith work on climate change. Its work is informed by the latest science on climate change – causes, impacts and solutions. The sense of urgency felt because of the science is balanced by faith in God and hope in his future for our world. It is faith-motivated, science-informed and hope-inspired.
